Disintegrating Flipbook by Andymation

How do you create a flipbook where the character is disintegrating? Add lots and lots of well-placed dots. This Disintegrating Flipbook animation tutorial from Laika stop-motion animator Andy Bailey of Andymation demonstrates with a LED light pad, a pencil, some paper and binding clips. And though making hundreds of dots to create the effect takes time and effort, as seen in the demo, it’s well worth the result.
